Buttons and Bows at In the Pink (and some exciting news!)

Good morning everyone,
I'm so excited to tell you that I have been asked to join the fabulous design team at In the Pink and am now a Pink Lady! I'm thrilled to be sharing my first DT post with you today for the new challenge of Buttons and Bows.

I thought that Sneaky Tilda would be perfect for this challenge because of the lovely bow in her hair - she's definitely one of my new favourite Magnolias! I used a Magnolia DooHickey die for the paper bow and a wooden heart button from the Ribbon Girl which I've covered with paint and glitter. I've done some hand-stitching again and I think this will be a regular feature on my cards now because I really enjoy doing it! I have also used:
Papers - Maja Design
Postcard - Lili of the Valley
Flowers - WOC
Lace - Live and Love Crafts
Charm and twine - Ribbon Girl
Pearl string - a recent candy win
Butterflies - Woodware punch
Gems - from my stash

I hope you can join in with the challenge! There's some fabulous inspiration from my new teammates over on the In the Pink blog.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Totally Tilda - Pearls, Glitter and Gems
Magnolia Down Under - Your Favourite Magnolia Stamp
Ribbon Girl - Magnolia Only: Add a Charm
A Creative Romance - A Touch of Kraft
Deep Ocean Challenge - Something Sweet
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for looking and for all your lovely comments!

  28. Hello, Rebecca,
    I saw this card on In the Pink challenge blog and I love it! I love especially the sewing, the little cage and the postcard, as this is a theme I really adore (letters and postcards)!
    I saw also some other posts after and before this one and all the cards are really lovely and inspiring!
